From the blurb. (Goodreads)

The one woman he couldn't have was the only woman he desired…

She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty—with no memory of what happened—he knows he's been drugged… even if Alani doesn't.

After she was kidnapped, Alani swore she'd never trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. As Jackson hunts downs a mysterious intruder, he swears he'll move heaven and earth to keep Alani safe. But what really happened that night? And will the truth bring them closer than they ever thought possible—or put Alani squarely in harm's way again?

REVIEW: 4 out of 5 stars

Savor the Danger is the third book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and definitely my favorite.

We first meet Alani Rivers in When You Dare after being rescued from a human trafficking ring, she is fiercely independent, mature and strong willed all the whilst still trying to overcome the emotional trauma she endured while being held captive.

Jackson Savor, an out-spoken, cocky, sexy and extremely alpha male has had a thing for Alani since meeting her; when he wakes up with her naked wrapped in his arms, he is certainly surprised but has no memory whatsoever of how she ended up there.

Alani is completely shattered when she sees Jackson’s reaction after what she believed to be a wonderful night; with him running to the bathroom to be sick and having what appeared to be regret in his eyes, she does the bolt, feeling extremely emotional and vulnerable. What she didn’t know is Jackson had been drugged, by whom; they were unsure but it was a mystery they needed to work out.

I absolutely adore the sexy alpha males in this series but Jackson is by far my favorite! I loved his sexy and at times humorous dialogue, he is a smooth talking cowboy who was hot hot hot! I loved the way he protected Alani but was still hard-edged when it mattered, they were wonderful together & the smexy scenes were great.

I enjoyed the suspense but for me it was more about the romance rather than the action which seemed to take a back-seat which I quite liked. The story moved at a quick and even pace, with an interesting and enjoyable plot.

The secondary characters are wonderful, Trace & Priss, Dare and Molly as well as Chris who I think is fantastic all make an appearance. From reading the last chapter, it appears the next book will be Spencer and Arizona as the main protagonists.

I enjoy Lori Foster’s writing style, she writes both romance and action in a way that holds my attention and keeps me wanting more.

Each book in this series can be read as stand-alone, characters from previous books are mentioned and their relationship briefly explained.

Books in order:

1. When You Dare
2. Trace of Fever
3. Savor the Danger
